Not bashing, just asking a question... don't shoot me


Why did you pick K&N?

They are old news. No one who customizes cars or bikes for power rely on them anymore since they are midrange, and are always beaten in side by side comparisons by other brands.

Buy what you want of course, I'm just confused by the choice.

What other choice do we have? The Stage 1 Victory filters are rusted out of the box. I don't want rust particles in my engine. If K&N are old news, which they are, then what else is out there for the Cross bikes? Nothing.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Are the Vic Stage 1 filters a clean and oil type or a disposable paper type?

Clean and oil. The only gripe I have against them, and the reason I did not get one, is that some of them come rusty from the box, brand new.

Do you run the rest of the Stage 1 or similar?

I don't have stage 1. I have a set of D&D slip-ons, stock air filter (the paper boy), with filter lip removed, and OČ sensors disconnected.

Do you have problems with blipping the throttle? I was considering those last two mods, but if it's going to make the engine die when I blip to downshift I'll pass.

Mine does not have any problems on throttle blipping, but Victory does suggest against throttle blipping. If you don't have problems with blipping now, I don't think you will once you add pipes either.

Sorry, I wasn't referring to the pipes, I have the Stage 1 pipe change and I'm happy with the sound or mostly lack-thereof. I was referring to the O2 and airbox changes. I read some old posts that indicated bikes would die when blipped. I can't imagine why Victory would warn against such a thing? That's like advising against revving the engine.
